|SAIL Pump Assembly - Stanford Artificial Intelligence Laboratory|
Late 20th century, 1973, robot arm at the Stanford Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, SAIL, assemblies an automobile water pump using computer vision. Shows the hand-eye system assembling a simple pump, using vision to locate the pump body and to check for errors. The parts are assembled and screws inserted, using some special tools designed for the arm. Some titles are included to help explain the film...

|Programmable Assembly, Three Short Examples. - Stanford Hand Eye Project|
The first segment demonstrates the arm's ability to dynamically adjust for position and orientation changes. The task is to mount a bearing and seal on a crankshaft. Next, the arm is shown changing tools and recovering from a run-time error. Finally, a cinematic first: two robot arms cooperating to assemble a hinge.

|Stanford Mech Eng Cart|
Stanford Mechanical Engineering 1966 film of a video line following cart without using a digital computer. This odd vehicle was handed off to the Stanford Artificial Intelligence Laboratory and was used in the 1970s by a succession of Computer Science graduate students: Rod Schmidt, Bruce Baumgart and Hans Moravec for Artificial Intelligence work on computer vision and robotic vehicles. The Stanford Cart is now (2006) at the Computer History Museum.

Hands by Robert Bolles, the sound by Kenneth Zunder is missing. Stanford gold arm, (SAIL Vic Scheinman) stacks four small colored cubes at three sites on a black table cloth. This is a brief glimpse at the early days of robotics.
|Display Simulations of 6-Legged Walking|
A display simulation of a 6-legged ant-like walker getting over various obstacles. The research is aimed at a planetary rover that would get around by walking. This cartoon favorite beats Mickey Mouse hands down; or rather, feet down. By D.I. Okhotsimsky, et al, Insitute of Applied Mathematics -- USSR Academy of Science, titles translated by Stanford AI Lab and edited by Suzanne Kandra. Was a 16mm black and white, silent, 10 minutes, 1972...

|Orbital Skyhooks - Hans Moravec|
Two parts of computer simulation depicting a dynamic orbital skyhook, a cable in a sub synchronous orbit that rotates to touch the planet surface. The first part shows a touch down and take off of an end of the cable at a hypothetical space port in Africa. The second segment shows an animated diagram of the cable skyhook as it rotates and orbits to "walk" the planet surface. Shot directly off a video monitor - low image quality...
